Premier Tech has been operating from the US since 1923. It currently employs approximately 372 team members deployed across 33 states and has five manufacturing facilities.
In 2020, the company launched a modernisation plan to further reinforce its commitment to continue investing and expanding its presence in the country.
The modernisation plan created 133 jobs for production and office teams, of which 78 were created at the newly opened Montgomery site and the remaining 55 jobs at other locations.
The new facility’s configuration, according to Premier Tech, can further help in inviting more investments and double its workforce by 2028.
A few weeks ago, the company, alongside its Systems and Automation business group, confirmed an investment of $13m for establishing a new technology and production centre in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Premier Tech site director Jeffrey A Kotila said: “With key investment to increase the quality of our products, like powder coating, and the integration of a technical floor allowing for testing equipment at full speed and payloads as well as a dedicated training room for clients and team members, our new headquarters are setting the stage for growing our sales and delivering an even better overall client experience.”
